i 've talked to Mr Dr. Nasse from Zeiss who is the leading engineer of this lens. This lens is designed by Zeis but build by Cosina in Japan. And he said, that Cosina build several lenses for other big photo companies. This lenses have AF!!!! And they have an agreemant with this big companies that cosina dont build lenses with AF. Then they dont loose there partners..
Why don't Zeiss make these new lenses with af?
